About the Author

Juliet Ames breaks plates for a living. A metals and craft major at Towson University, Ames went on to work for the Howard County Arts Council organizing gallery exhibits. Meanwhile, she kept up her own craftwork. The plate-breaking started with a mosaic mailbox. “There were leftover pieces, so I soldered them and wrapped them around my neck and got a lot of compliments,” says Ames, 28, who just had her first child, a boy.

    hi there—- i use recycled plastic bottles in my earrings sometimes….. it is a great alternative to the usage of the classic technique of plique-au-jour enameling and is far more durable to boot…. i appreciate the translucence and spectrum of colors out there…… Neiva and Fructis are a couple of my favorites…..
